22-year-old Barmaid, Kate Hannah Sacked For Not Wearing Bra To Work
Kate Hannah, 22, has claimed she was left feeling objectified after an “innapropriate sexual remark” was made about her appearance.
But instead of dealing with the comment, Kate claims she was blamed for not wearing a bra to work.
She also claims she was told that she couldn’t go back to work at the Bird and Beer unless she wore a bra.
She wrote: “So I’ve just got home after being sacked from my job for refusing to wear a bra.
“Yesterday an inappropriate sexual remark was made to me, by my manager’s brother and in the presence of her. I felt uncomfortable, objectified and shocked that this had happened.
“Unfortunately she saw fit to tell me that I’m not allowed to work in future unless I’m wearing a bra.”
She added: “She called me stupid, silly and over the top when I told her I was upset.
“I am absolutely disgusted, with the unprofessionalism, and blatant lack of respect for my right as a woman to wear whatever makes me personally comfortable.”
The owner of the pub, in Beverley, Yorks, has denied Kate’s claims that she was sacked for not wearing a bra.
In a statement, he said: “We can confirm that no employees have been dismissed from the company regarding these allegations.
“We have a duty of care to protect all of our employees from any discrimination or sexual harassment within the work place and we take any comments towards our employees very seriously and act upon them immediately in a professional manner.”
